Bio

Award-winning artist, Peggi Kroll-Roberts (b. 1954), was trained at Arizona State University and the Art Center College of Design in Pasadena, CA. Peggi worked as a fashion and advertising illustrator before transitioning to fine art.

Her artworks are featured in the Laguna Beach Art Museum and the Pasadena Historical Museum.

Using intense color and value to accentuate her subject, she moved into fine art with a bold palette, a love for small paintings and a very loose style that achieves a lot with a few very energetic brush strokes. She prefers to suggest reality than render it. Peggi paints animated figures, and breaks away from conventional still life with playful paintings of everyday scenes: cosmetics, the occasional coffee cup or slab of butter. Peggi's work gives us a new appreciation of daily life.

Peggi's realist impressionist and expressionist styles are striking and she has won multiple fine art and plein air awards in addition to the Blackwell prize in painting.

Peggi's daughter Mary and her husband live in Appleton, Maine.
